|Title:||Isolation of carotenoids producing marine red yeasts|
|Abstract:||Marine red yeasts were enriched and isolated using sea-water samples from different locations as well as various marine animals. Two red yeast isolates selected were studied for their carotenoids production. Two selected isolates were identified as Rhodosporidium paludigenum and Sporobolomyces novazealandicus based on their cultural, morphological and biochemical characters. The isolates were studied for their carotenoid content using HPTLC and HPLC. The Rhodosporidium paludigenum isolate was observed to produce β-carotene only, whereas isolate Sporobolomyces novazealandicus produced higher amounts of total carotenoids, with an additional pigment.|
